    Backflip How To: Import contacts from Sim card

    HI there, I am brand new to the backflip and this forum so hopefully i am posting this in the right spot!
    when i go to view my contacts, i am not seeing anyone's phone numbers. I only see their facebook info. the salesperson at the at&t store that i bought it from sat there and made sure all my contacts from my old phone were stored onto my sim card and then he put that card in my backflip so i thought they would all be on my new phone just fine! but i can't find any of my phone numbers. Can anyone help me with this??
    i tried going into Settings-google sync-enable contacts, but contacts already had a green check next to it. i unchecked it and checked it again just in case it needed updating since i just did the google thing last night, but no such luck.

    any tips would be greatly appreciated!!
    thank you
    Kathy

    Welcome to the forums. You need to import the contact from you sd card, sound like that was not done. open your contacts (hit the person button outlined in blue on the right bottom of your screen) now click the menu botton (four square button at the bottom left of the phone) go to more then settings, then click on import from sim card. This should help you out.

    Thank you so so so much! it is importing them now!!!
    ok, so now is there a way to combine all of one contacts info under one name? like for my sister, there are 4 seperate contacts for her plus her facebook contact.
    i am sure there is a way to do this, but just wondering if you have a nice easy way?!

    thanks again for helping with my problem!!

    The best way I find to do this is once you create your gmail account via the first time you open up marketplace it will have you do this.

    Then go onto your computer and login into gmail. Then go to your contacts. (your phone will automatically sync your contacts into gmail). Now you can edit your contacts here with a lot of options.

    Every edit that you make will automatically sync back into your phone. ENJOY!!

    The 2.1 you have been hearing about is an upcoming Android (which is the OS from google your phone is running) update. It has many more features that will be included as well as some bug fixes.

    Another way to do it is to go to the contact. (Your sister) press menu and link contact, it will bring up all contacts in your phone weather they are facebook, twitter, phone numbers, and you just select which ones you want to link or merge.

    I go into my gmail and my contacts from my phone are not there. How can I manually pull them over.

    Another question: On my phone, when I click on messaging, the icons that come up are my yahoo mail, facebook, and text messaging. Gmail is not there. How do I add it to that screen? My gmail is already linked, because I get notifications....it's just not on that screen.
